Handmade Dry Creek Turquoise Sterling Overlay Bracelet Signed By Marita Benally
This bracelet features a rare natural center stone (Dry Creek) with a brown matrix on an intricate sterling silver overlay.
Dry Creek Turquoise mine is a mine which is located in Lander County, Nevada. Dry Creek Turquoise has gained much popularity in recent years with its milky white and light blue coloring and brown matrix. This color of turquoise was not previously used in jewelry. Different from the White Buffalo from Tonopah, Nevada, Dry Creek is indeed considered a very rare mine, because the mine is currently closed. Dry Creek with brown matrix is the highest grade of this turquoise.

I choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
I also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
1 inch in width with a total length 7 inches, including an 1 in gap.

Bracelet Fitting Guide:åÊ
Use a tape measure. Wrap the tape measure around your wrist on which you plan to wear your Toqos bracelet. Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. To ensure the bracelet fits comfortably, add 1.5 cm or 1/2 inch. For sterling bracelets, some can be bent and adjusted due to the versatility of sterling silver.
I will ship it out to you nicely packaged within 1 business day via USPS. All packages are insured.
I want you to enjoy your Toqos jewelry. In case you are not satisfied with your item, you can return it within 14 days. All I ask for is that you send it back in perfect condition within that time frame.
Kindly note that I unfortunately cannot process international returns & exchanges at this time: all international sales are final.
If you're unsure about caring of your jewelry, wonder if it's right for you or have any other questions.
